The Loretta C. Duckworth Scholars Studio (LCDSS) of Temple University Libraries, in collaboration with the College of Liberal Arts and the Fox School of Business, will award two faculty fellowships for the next academic year. Applicants should outline a research or creative project involving the use of computational methods in the study of topics of social or humanistic interest. This might include e.g. approaches from the Digital Humanities, 3D printing, VR environments, or the use of games and gaming for teaching and research.
LCDSS Faculty Fellows receive one course reduction for the year, help with project management, a dedicated research assistant, and a $1000 research fund. Fellows will also meet regularly with Studio staff to discuss progress on their projects, and attend monthly meetings with the other faculty and graduate student fellows in the Studio.
Recipients must be able to attend and participate in person for the project conferences and monthly fellows seminar. Applicants must be tenured or tenure-track faculty members in the College of Liberal Arts or the Fox School of Business.
Applications will be reviewed by an interdisciplinary group of faculty and librarians. Award decisions are based on the promise of the project, its relevance to your own research/creative work, its methodology, scope, conceptual framework, and the ability of the LCDSS to address the project’s needs. For past and ongoing projects see the blogposts here: https://sites.temple.edu/tudsc. To apply please submit:
• A project statement (4 pages double-spaced, plus a bibliography or illustrations, if needed) describing: (1) the specific research/creative work planned for the year; (2) its significance to your research/creative agenda: (3) how the project will complement, challenge, or expand existing work in the field; and (4) expected outcomes. An application should state what kind of data will be used, where it comes from, and its copyright situation.
• A current C.V.
